Good evening Lauren & thank for this evenings road trip! *Hugs*
At my Mom’s checking up on her, will be back later to visit.
Have a great evening!
Years ago, I asked fifth-grade students to prepare a list of questions to ask Jesus if He were to show up in person the following week. I also asked groups of adults to do the same thing. The results were startlingly different. The kids questions ranged from adorable to poignant: Will we have to sit around in robes and sing all day in heaven? Will my puppy be in heaven? Were the whales in or out of the ark? Hows my grandpa doing up there with You? Almost without fail, their questions were free from doubt that heaven existed or that God acts supernaturally.
Adults, on the other hand, featured a completely different line of questioning: Why do bad things happen to good people? How do I know Youre listening to my prayers? Why is there only one way to heaven? How could a loving God let this tragedy happen to me?
For the most part, children live life unfettered by the cares and sorrows that burden adults. Their faith lets them trust God more readily. While we adults often get lost in trials and sorrows, children retain the psalmists view of lifean eternal perspective that sees the greatness of God (Ps. 8:1-2).
God can be trusted, and He longs for us to trust Him the way children do (Matt. 18:3).
Read: Psalm 8
